Other half? Other 1/10th. Very Nice. But when you do not turn on the cans, how much light is in the room? Can you see enough to walk around and not crash into things?

It's been a few years since these installs, but yeah, they give off a little light in a dark room...I wouldn't want to perform brain surgery with the rope lighting alone...but, they're more for ambiance than anything else.

I was thinking about doing this in my home. what is the minimum i should come down from the ceiling to install the crown molding to give the right effect. I don't have cathedral ceilings or anything, so i am going to have to go with the minimum here.

-thanks

I've install the crown where the top of the crown is down 2 inches from the ceiling.

Keeping mind that LED lighting is directional, 30-60 degree light
Rope lighting using normal minis will produce over all light in every direction
Rope light will produce heat, DO NOT coil it or light it up when it is coiled
If the LED in the rope light is pointing "the wrong way" then you will have less light coming out in the direction you want
I have 18' of LED rope light in my kitchen (to be remodeled) as a test
It is very noticeable the directional nature of the LED light
My rope light is fully exposed under the cabinets at present
The 18' length uses a total of 10w while on
Normal rope light will use around 3w per foot depending upon lights used

You can "line-up" the LEDs in the rope light to point in the direction you want
Provided they are all installed in the rope light pointing in the same direction
